Tuesday's Relationship Dose - 5th March 2013


"And let us not neglect our meeting together, as
some people do, but encourage and warn each other,especially now that the day of his [Jesus] comingback again is drawing near."   - Hebrews 10:25 (NLT).

I'm sure you've heard the old example of how to
keep a fire burning in a fireplace. It's about
keeping the burning logs and coals stoked together.
Coals that fall away from the body of the fire soon
become cold and their fire goes out.

This is an excellent illustration of why those who
claim to be believers in Jesus need to be actively
involved in a good church. To keep on fire; that is,
enthusiastic, regarding our faith we need fellowship
and connection with fellow Christians.

Furthermore, we were created for relationships.
Christianity is not only having a right relationship
with God, but also with others. Healthy elationships
are vital for healthy living and meaningful
growth—physical, emotional, and spiritual. We may exist but cannot live meaningfully and healthily
in isolation.

God himself is in relationship: God the Father,
God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. And one of
the first things Jesus did at the commencement of
his earthly ministry was to choose twelve "that
they might be with him." - Mark 3:14.

We need not only to "walk with Jesus" but also with each other. None of us can make it alone. We weren't meant to. Likewise we need to belong to a fellowship filled with warm and loving Christians to help keep us "on fire" for God.

Prayer: "Almighty and Everlasting God, help me to
stay connected to loving and supportive Christians
so I can stay enthusiastic about my Christian faith
and 'on fire' for you. Thank you for
hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully,
In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Tuesday and God Bless you.
